Top 20 Best-Selling Cars In Canada - March 2017

2017 Honda Civic hatchback red
Canadian passenger car sales dipped slightly in March 2017, losing market share as SUVs and crossovers and pickup trucks and minivans soared. 

But the decline would have been far more significant if not for the momentous year-over-year improvements reported by numerous top sellers, from the most popular Honda Civic through to the Kia Forte, Subaru Impreza, Nissan Altima, and Nissan Versa.

Civic sales jumped 37%, year-over-year, to 8145 units, just the second 8000+ month for the Civic in the last five+ years. Toyota Corolla sales, meanwhile, jumped 32% to 4778 units. The Mazda 3, Chevrolet Cruze, Nissan Sentra, Mercedes-Benz C-Class, and the aforementioned Forte, Impreza, Altima, and Versa all reported double-digit year-over-year percentage increases.



But it was the all-conquering Civic, Canada's best-selling car in 19 consecutive years, that owned 13% of the Canadian passenger car market and now leads the second-ranked Corolla by 4622 units after just one-quarter.

Historical monthly and yearly sales figures for any of these best-selling cars can always be accessed through the dropdown menu at GCBC's Sales Stats page, and for those not viewing the mobile version of this site, near the top right of this page, as well. Mobile users can now thumb across the table for full-width access.
